Letter to the Editor | Monday, January 21, 2019
Fr. Jenkins released a letter to campus on Sunday regarding the Columbus Murals in the Main Building. I have no comments to share regarding Columbus, Native American history or the murals themselves: I will leave that to others who have more developed and informed positions on the topics. I do, however, want to join the President’s sentiment in condemning exploitation of vulnerable individuals, the forced introduction of new diseases and the duty to acknowledge the “darker sides” of such histories. To this end, I wanted to ask: Does Theodore McCarrick still hold an honorary degree from Notre Dame?
Ph.D. class of 2008
